The Conditions for Success brief helps programs examine their readiness for implementing new teacher induction by identifying the ideal conditions for successfully implementing teacher induction. Ten program conditions are identified and described with a goal of providing guidance and opportunities for programs that do not have all of the conditions in place.  The brief ends with the Conditions for Success Self-Evaluation Worksheet, which provides an opportunity for school teams to discuss the conditions currently in place at their program and to evaluate and discuss what steps can be taken to improve readiness for implementing teacher induction if conditions are not in place.

Benefits and Uses

Teacher induction is relatively new for the adult education field.  Providing programs with a tool for determining their readiness and preparing for induction will result in more successful induction pathway efforts in adult education. This tool is intended for use by instructional leaders and  teams that are considering beginning a teacher induction program.

Useful feature:

  • The Program Conditions for Success Self-Evaluation Worksheet can be used by instructional teams to identify which conditions they have in place. It can prompt discussion about what steps can be taken to improve the program’s readiness for implementing teacher induction.
